Event Details

We are happy to announce that eresus will hold the first ever Acquia training on Drupal for Greek Drupal lovers. Having acquired official partnership with Acquia, we are able to bring to the Greek community the full program of trainings, including course documents and presentations

What is Drupal?

Drupal (pronounced drew-pull) is web development software written in a popular scripting language - PHP. Drupal has both a point and click interface to allow tech-savvy people to put together websites with no programming experience; and Drupal also has an API and framework for programmers to develop unique applications. And it's all free- it's opensource.

Consider a career in Drupal

Drupal has become wildly popular over the last 5 years, and there are many jobs available for people from a variety of backgrounds. This should be great news in an economy where students are concerned about finding meaningful, exciting careers with growth potential. Because of this, at Acquia, we're working hard to grow Drupal talent, not only for ourselves, but for our clients, our partners and our community.

Our partners include both small boutique web development companies with distributed international teams, and larger established digital agencies. Drupal users include government agencies (such as Whitehouse.gov, US House of Reps), media organizations (AlJazeera, The Nation, The Economist) , not-for-profits (Amnesty International, World Economic Forum) and many companies who are realizing the benefits of open source, see more athttp://buytaert.net/tag/drupal-sites.

  • Students exploring options for careers in web development, cloud computing and infrastructure, design, sales, marketing. 
  • Career switchers looking to expand on their prior experience.
  • Self-starters who are curious and want to learn new skills that are in demand.
